Wasps sign ‘freak of nature’ All Blacks forward

Wasps have announced the signing of All Black lock and flanker Vaea Fifita, who will join the Club for next season from the New Zealand Rugby Union.

The 29-year-old has 11 caps for the All Blacks, after making an eye-catching debut against Samoa in 2017.

A player with immense speed for his size, Fifita will be invaluable at the lineout for Wasps, with his impressive athleticism seeing him make the most lineout steals (22) of any New Zealand player in Super Rugby since the beginning of 2016.

Like current Wasp and former All Black Malakai Fekitoa, Fifita was born in raised in Tonga, before moving to New Zealand for school.

Fifita won the Super Rugby title alongside current Wasps Brad Shields and Jeff Toomaga-Allen with the Hurricanes in 2016.
